Heavy haze hung in the air throughout Israel on Tuesday morning, as the Environmental Protection Ministry warned the public of the high levels of pollution as a result of a dust storm, which has swept through the Middle East.
High concentrations of breathable particles were measured in the early morning hours in areas ranging from the Golan Heights to Jerusalem. The haze will continue to spread across Israel throughout the afternoon hours, leading the ministry to issue a warning against conducting physical activities outdoors.
